Washington, Nov 8 : Popstar Britney Spears left Los Angeles on Friday along with her two kids morning to make an early holiday pilgrimage to her hometown Kentwood.
After losing kids' custody to Federline, it was the first time that the 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' hitmaker was allowed to take Preston, 3, and Jayden, 2, out of California.
Spears made the trip the day after her mini reunion with former boyfriend Justin Timberlake at a Madonna concert in L.A. Spears traveled with her father, Jamie, who has legal control of her affairs.
"This is a terrific indication of the progress she's made, and the growing trust between the two parents," People magazine quoted a source, as saying.
"It was arranged cooperatively between Kevin and the lawyers," the source added.
After reaching a custody settlement, Britney currently has two visits and an overnight per week with her children.
"Britney just wanted to get some family time in and show the boys Louisiana, now that they're getting older," the source said.
